Program Description

Event Description

Work on your little ones motor skill development with this lacing activity. Each kit will contain a pipe cleaner and several buttons. Littles will be able to thread the pipe cleaner with buttons to make their own bracelet. In addition to the bracelet activity kids can work on their shapes and colors by sorting the buttons they are given. This kit will also include handouts from smart start, early birds, and a booklist for parents that focuses on skill development with your children. If you want to make this a parent and child activity look for our upcoming adult button bracelets kit.

Kits are one per FAMILY. Any duplicate registrations will be deleted. This kit does contain small items, so please do not leave small children unattended with this kit. Kits can be picked up at Northwest Library from Wednesday October 7th through Saturday October 10th during curbside pickup hours.

Due to high demand for these kits, all print outs and instructions will be posted here on the SUNDAY after the last day of pickup so that families with siblings or others who may not have had the opportunity to register can reproduce the kit at home.
